Conflict Management for Women: Skills, Strategies, and Solutions

Is what you are doing in conflict working for you? Clair and Carlee have spent the last five years gathering research, testing ideas, and training learners on what really works for managing conflict. From this work, they have developed a framework that creates a new mindset and language for approaching conflict.
